The Art Box - Episode 64 - 38th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering - Larry, Verbal Nods, FM Radio and the Gathering Wrap Up
This is it folks, our final episode from the gathering.
First a huge thanks to the Buchanan Family Band from Yerrington, NV. Besides a great show on our opening night, a super family interview they allowed us to use their rendition of "Little Brown Jug" as our opening and in episode interludes. What a nice family and so very talented.
The volunteers worked so very hard, our press liaison Karyn was incredible getting us the inside tracks on Waddie and Yvonne interviews.
Then we perused the various talented vendors. Kathleen Brannon with her beautiful bead work, we talked to for probably thirty minutes and who can forget her quote: "For everything that's good in life, there is a compromise" You can find her amazing art at:
Our course we would not be complete without mentioning our now friend Larry. The Press room was not very busy, normally it was only the Art Box and KVMR radio Larry Hillberg. Larry gave us some great stories, deep to the heart. His great quote: "Story is very powerful on radio"

We finish up this episode thanking our sponsors Nevada Humanities and National Endowment for the Humanities, trying our hand at Cowboy Poetry and finally sharing a song that meant so much to Larry in his story about his parents.
We hope all of our loyal listeners enjoy our many podcasts from Elko.
As you now know we recorded many hours and thought long and hard on how we would publish, an episode per day? One long episode or break it up in easy bite sized episodes. We chose the ladder and hope that works for you.
Our best - Linda Harris and Steve Dudrow
